I caught two crabs today, and came home and cooked them. After they were done cooking, I washed off under running water, with water only, the tongs of which I had handled the live crabs, and then used them to take the cooked crabs out of the pot and put them on my plate. I don't know what I was thinking, but I did not think about this until after I ate the crabs. Do I have anything to worry about? I know I should have washed the tongs with soap and water at a minimum, or better yet used a different pair of tongs. It has been about 6 hours since I ate the crabs; I guess I will know by this time tomorrow night if the crabs got their revenge.

You will be OK. I have been doing that for over 40 years and never got sick from it.

I would be more worried about handling the chicken necks.
Wash Your Hands, Not the Chicken

1.Do not allow raw poultry or its juices to touch other foods, especially fruits and vegetables. ...
2.Do not rinse raw chicken; splashing water can cause cross-contamination.
3.Before and after handling raw poultry, use hot, soapy water for 20 seconds to wash:
